A Caregiving Comfort: Ring

Denise

Some rings are just a nuisance like the infamous ring around the collar.

Some rings are just bothersome like the one around the sink.

And, some rings are just too much. When the phone rings, it feels like it's bad news calling. The home health aide will be late. The credit card company wants you to be on time. The emergency at work requires your attention. The emergency at home demands your solution.

The ringing will lead to madness.

You'll be mad that you can't plan. You'll be mad that you can't pay. You'll be mad that you can't prepare. You'll be mad that you can't prevent.

Will the ringing ever stop?

Some day, the ring that irritates will become that ring that brings you better. These rings of terrible news are simply temporary. The ringing will turn into music to your ears -- you'll get better news, good news and the best news. You'll be able to plan. You'll be able to pay. You'll be able to prepare. Maybe you won't prevent, but you certainly can live with purpose.

The bad luck is temporary. Better luck, which leads to good luck, will ring. And, you'll be so glad you answered.
